    You're gonna have to cite more similarities than just a "virtuous hero" to claim that Harry Potter copies Narnia. You might as well claim that it copies the Epic of Gilgamesh.

    I have no opinion whatsoever about Got or the fact that they're making a prequel of it.

    I can, however, unironically say that I'd watch Gabe's dragon sitcom idea and am disappointed that networks aren't giving him millions of dollars to make it.
    (Though rather than a friendly dragon in a sweater, I'd give him the appearance of you typical badass high fantasy Dragon. Just for the contrast of having a serious looking dragon being a struggling but well meaning dad in everyday situations)

    Yeah, The Facts of Life But With A Dragon is an incredible idea.

    I’m wondering more what JKR’s angle against Narnia is given that she copied it

    Copied it? Harry Potter is a classic Heroes' Journey. Narnia is a Christian allegory. In what ways are they similar?
